Must be hard to be a Democrat, living in a bubble of approbation so thick you can’t see the reality of other people’s belief systems.

Recently this came into full focus on the official, verified Twitter account of the “Senate Democrats.”  This account is the domain of the “Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.”  They say they “work to elect Senate Dems for a fair economy, safe country & opportunity for all” and to be the “last line of defense against Trump.”

I’m sure they thought it would be a great idea to ask America if they wanted another justice like the much-ballyhooed Ruth Bader Ginsburg or the evil (cue the ominous music) Brett Kavanaugh.  Turns out, the people who responded to their Twitter poll wanted more Kavanaugh.

Journalist Yashir Ali voted in the poll (you’ll notice from the screen shot that he voted for Ginsburg).  But it was a screen shot, because the Democrats deleted the poll once “unfavorable” votes kept getting cast.  

“Who thought this was a good idea?” he tweeted.  Then, he pointed out the hypocrisy. “The @dscc has deleted this tweet after the results didn’t end up in their favor,” he tweeted.

Who knows?  We don’t want to be too hard on them.  

Maybe the Russians interfered?

Regardless, this shows that the Democrats are tone-deaf with it comes to what “the people” want.  And, when they ask you a question, you better not veer from their pre-approved talking points.
